The council voted to allow the Chamber to hold WineFest June 8 on the Appanoose County Courthouse lawn.
"It's a good event and it does bring people in," Joyce Bieber, executive director Centerville-Rathbun Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, said.
In an unrelated issue, Bieber talked about the metal benches on the sidewalk around the Centerville Square and the desire to move some and flip some. Bieber asked the council to allow volunteers to take some of the benches and move them to the courthouse lawn and to turn around the rest of the benches so they face the buildings, something she said that was part of the original design.
"And we don't want to kick everyone off the Square," Bieber said, noting the original use of the benches was for shoppers as a place to rest. "The Square is more for the community to use and enjoy. It's not really intended for long-term ... loitering or spending hours sitting on the Square."
Input from business owners would help determine which benches would be involved, Bieber said.
The council voted to allow the volunteers to move and flip benches as they see fit.
A request from the city of Mystic to use Centerville's street sweeper died for the lack of a motion. Mystic officials didn't help their request when no one from the city attended the council meeting to give more information about the request.
